The GS Yuasa Sealed AGM GTZ12S motorcycle battery will arrive fully charged and ready to use since it is sealed and activated at the factory. You do not have to fuss with acid or worry about leaks eating away at your new chrome job. Most all GS batteries come with a 12 Mo. free replacement warranty.
All GTZ12S GS aftermarket power sport batteries are made in Japan, Taiwan or the United States of America in a Yuasa Battery Inc. facility. Yuasa is the world's largest producer of small engine batteries for motorcycle, ATV's, lawn tractors, snowmobiles, scooters and personal watercraft. They have been making small engine motorcycle batteries for Honda since 1979 and now are the original equipment (OE) for companies like Kawasaki, Harley-Davidson, Buell and Suzuki to name just a few. This particular part number is made in Taiwan.
The GTZ12S battery by GS Yuasa is 12V and has cold cranking amps of 170 and an amp hour rating of 11. For those that prefer activating and sealing their battery on their own, you would want to purchase a Dry Charge AGM version designated by the "-BS" following the part number. This type of battery, also known as bottle stock, will come with an easy to use, generally spill-free bottle of acid.
